IMO E
238. Dental caries and gingivitis can be exacerbated not only by the foods patients eat but also by when the patients eat them.
(A) not only by the foods patients eat but also by when the patients eat them - not only and but also should have parallel clause.
(B) by not only the foods patients eat but also by when the patients eat them - Again same problem as A. not only and but also lacks parallelism. "by" in 1st part should be after "not only"
(C) not only by the foods patients eat but also by time when the foods are eaten - mixes active and passive voice
(D) by not only the foods that are eaten by patients but also by the times the foods are eaten - by before not only
(E) not only by what patients eat but also by when they eat it - concise and parallel
